makes the total about year now, haveéel some handouts here andi can pass them out. it's -- when most of the folks that go to drug court are marginally housefph9aíz and/or unemployed and by the time they graduate, 100% have stable housing and some source of lega3 income. although the numbers are not huge per class, any little bit helps as the recidivism rate is decidedly lower thanx!exq4  tht do not go to drug court. to hear the commentary of the folkst( at graduation, they, themselves, can't believe they all say that they did it just to sort of work the system and get their case dismissed. realize they're not allowed to get it through that way and that's->w7au a good thing. another thing that the deputy chief brought up,b1fm$ or i gues it'sñp?p&yt actually on the ages where are we with 5.05. i think it's the content is good. the formatting'seq"zó(wm not sos opposed to the old order. i'm working with the city attorney to correct it as to form. and i think that within the next the draft for everyone to look at here, which is again where we would be with the department domestic violenc

. >> thank you very much, next speaker. >> hello my name is [tkha-els/] from coleman advocates for children and youth and thanks for the presentation and your attention. [speaker not understood] she went to her high school counselor and the counselor said -- she said why didn't you give me these credits? and she said i didn't know you wanted to go to college. i just thought you wanted to graduate high school. the reason why we pushed for this policy to go into place and the reason why i think the board of education unanimously voted for it and their original intention of this policy is that we graduate students college and career-ready not just to graduate high school and not just for low-wage job so they can make a choice for themselves as opposed to someone else making the choice for them; right? i think in saying that means that we need to look at c or better as the measurement of our success in preparing students and not just looking at a d; right? in the charts that were presented, it says that 26% of african-american students are on-track with a d or better. that means that 74% are no
